districts across america. not just from michael bloomberg but obviously from gabby giffords' efforts and others. and you're going to see whatever money the nra spends in 2014 you'll see that double, triple, quadrupled from people who support sensible gun control. so what once was the safe vote in a lot of districts is no longer going to be the safe vote. and i can tell you, chris, i know a thing or two about politics. republicans got angry with me over the past year when i told them mitt romney was in trouble. i can tell you something. in 2014 in my district in northwest florida, a district jerry fall wwell called the most conservative in america, there's no doubt this would be the right move for me to run as a fiscally conservative republican, a pro-life republican who has said enough to survivalists and extremists. the second amendment is about protecting our homes and hunting with our friends and family members. it's not about military-styled assault weapons that ended up killing, you know, 6-year-old and 7-year-old kids in connecticut. >> i'm on your side. thank you joe scarborou

in the state like virginia taking on the n.r.a. and you have michael bloomberg spending money on this and defeating a-rated n.r.a. candidates. so the whole calculus has changed. it used to be the n.r.a. was the one game in town on the money front and the pac front. that's changed. so there's a real cost now for standing with the n.r.a. and i that is as you would say a game changer in that regard. >> brown: dr. gold, how does it change your world? the evolving politics here and events like newtown? >> well, it's -- you know, from my perspective-- and i'm not a gun expert, obviously-- but from my perspective it's really unfortunate that it takes these kinds of events to move forward with our country to make a stronger commitment to providing for mental health care needs of our citizens. it shouldn't have to take something like this for something to become a social priority. >> brown: but now that it's here, as you were saying before, there's still going to be many, many questions about how you implement it. last night we talked about new york state and various states taking some
